Connection issue with connector SAP_BW



When system connection tests are viewed for the above mentioned connector, there are 3 options:

SAP Web AS Connection

ITS Connection

Connection Test for Connectors

The first one tests as ok, while the other 2 fail. In the ITS Connection Test, there are 7 steps. The test fails on the fifth step. Log is shown below:

ITS Connection

Test Details:

The test consists of the following steps:

1. Check the validity of the system ID in the system object

2. Check whether the system can be retrieved

3. Check whether the system object has a valid system alias

4. Check whether a SAP system is defined in the system object

5. Validate the following parameters: ITS protocol; ITS host name

6. Check the validity of any user mapping in the system object

7. Check HTTP/S connectivity to the defined backend application


1. The system ID is valid

2. Retrieval of the system was successful

3. Retrieval of the default alias was successful

4. The system object represents an SAP system

5. Some of the following parameters are invalid: ITS Protocol () ITS Host Name ()

I need to resolve this as quickly as possible. Any help is greatly appreciated.
